Maker Art is an open air art studio located in Camas, WA offering small group art classes for kids. Features functional kiln fired ceramics using hand-building techniques.


Hi! My name is Jen Hanson, I am the owner of Maker Art and Play. A little about me. I am the mother of two wonderful girls ages 5 and 10. We moved to Camas in 2019, and have enjoyed exploring much of the outdoor recreation and hiking trails the area has to offer. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in childhood development and education (explains all the posts about the social and emotional benefits of art, right?!). Last year I was a substitute teacher for a few school districts in the Portland area. Maker Art is a melding of my past teaching experiences and my passion for art and creativity. We love utilizing art tools and mediums in new ways and appreciate the benefits this type of exploration promotes.



These Sweet Treat Animal Bowls are on display at

Camas Gallery. Crafted by a 4 and 9 year old, stop in and check them out. Been thinking about enrolling your child in Maker Art and Play? March classes are full but we will be rolling out April and May shortly.
